Re: the story Alert over 'secret shopper' scam. If this is a "sophisticated" scam, in which the victim is asked out of the blue to send £1,500 to a complete stranger, could someone explain to me what an obvious scam looks like?
Adam, London, UK

That story of the accounts administrator from Devon failing in his bid to set a world Brussel sprout eating record, despite a training regime of "a plate of sprouts every day for the last six months". I'm guessing here, but he lives alone, right?
Stig, London, UK

Was there any need to mention previous X-factor winner Steve Brookstein's failure in music in the Daily Mini Quiz result? Talk about kicking a man when he's down - where's the Christmas love?
Laura Birch, Huddersfield

Thanks for the lovely Christmas present (in Monday’s letters) PM and Stacey. I really enjoyed the look on the face of the free-paper-giver-outers to whom I said: "Stop, you're giving me the freebie-jeebies!" on my way home last night.
Jessica, London

The Christmas festivities are upon us, and a recent event with the Bishop of Southwark suggests yet another gap in English vocabulary. A word, please, for that worrying condition where you distinctly remember NOT being drunk, but nothing else?
David Dee, Matola, Mozambique

Re: Teenagers’ speech. My teenage niece says my husband is 'random'. Does anyone have a clue to what she means? Is it good or bad thing?
Jackie Thompson, Yorkshire

Re: Speculation (in Monday’s letters) over how Lembit Opik chose between the Cheeky Girls. I don't know. But do you think his chat up line was "Hello Cheeky"?
Kip, Norwich, UK
